At least that’s what I have deduced after looking at the lost & found section in the Egyptian weekly classifieds paper, Al-Waseet.
The first scan is from Al-Waseet’s July 7th issue, the other is from its July 23rd issue (I added the red arrows). I didn’t get any other issues between those two, but didn’t need to to notice the weirdness…
Both issues have a combined total of 13 ads in the lost & found section. Seven, count’em, SEVEN ads are for lost Jordanian passports! That’s more than 50% of all ads for lost stuff in Cairo in two weeks! (well, one is for a Jordanian national I.D. Card, in the interest of statistical accuracy)
Does anyone have any logical explanation for this, or do Jordanians just lose their shit a lot?
